I'm only 20 years old but for the past two years it seems I've had a receding hairline. Especially on the side/temple part it's thinning to the point where I can definitely notice patches of bald spots between the baby hair. I used 5% minoxidil and 1% nizoral shampoo for about 8 months but I stopped for about 2 months 'cause I thought it wasn't doing anything now I noticed it's even worse and I started using it again. Is there anything I can do for the thinning side and temple part. Any help would be appreciated this is ridiculously pathetic I feel so self-conscious it's so unfair to be dealing with this at such a young age when it feels all my friends have normal hairlines :(. ps. I'm a broke college student so I don't have much money or insurance to go the the doctor and get that propecia stuff prescribed

Finastride is only thing that can stop/slow ur hairloss. Try to get ur hands on generic version (Finpecia). Its same thing much cheaper.
Also cut ur hair very short & dont tease them.

If you can afford a doctors appoint you can get generic finastride in 5 mg and cut them into quarters. It equals out to under $3 in the USA at Walmart. I see my doctor once a year, So it's not that bad. Here is a link of a IAHRS doctor with pics of guys on meds before and after.http://www.bernsteinmedical.com/medical-treatment/patient-photos/

Best of luck!
